Book Synopsis



The bestselling author of When God Made You and When I Pray for You captures the wonder of Christmas and the joy of Jesus' birth in a lyrical exploration of what makes the season so colorful, magical, and personal.

In his trademark style, Matthew Paul Turner celebrates the Christmas season, particularly the colors that infuse the holiday and all the memorable sensations and experiences--including a festive market, sledding, and nativity scene--connected to those bright hues. Matthew draws his readers into a whirling ribbon of the familiar reds and greens of Christmas, as well as other festive hues, including white, gold, blue, and brown.

Christmas is RED.
It's a bright shiny sled.
It's candy canes,
and toy store lanes.
It's sprinkles on sweet bread.
Christmas is BROWN
It's pinecones scattered round...
It's a cradle soft with hay
And a donkey's gentle bray.

It's God within
a baby's skin
on that very first Christmas Day.

All the colors come together when readers are reminded that Christmas is YOU--you're a part of the story, the joy and the glory! Matthew shows us again and again that the holidays are nothing without being with the people we love, celebrating treasured traditions, and making new memories--all in vivid color.

This precious book reminds the reader of every special bit of Christmas from time spent with family, to favorite holiday traditions, secular and religious. I loved reading this with my three year old and asking her what she remembers from last year while also anticipating what we want to check off our list for this year. Importantly, this little book focuses on how we each can do our part to make Christmas special by simply being ourselves and loving others. Another wonderful poem from Matthew Paul Turner and exquisite illustrations by Gillian Gamble.

This Delightful Christmas Story Will Become a Family Favorite!

PastorTami - 2 years ago
Delightful Christmas Book! This new Christmas book has the same whimsical illustrations and fun rhymes that I was used to in books when I grew up while being inclusive in both language and in the illustrations. All the various ways that Christmas time is magical are included in this short book while also including the core Christmas story narrative from the Christian gospel. It fits right into the many important traditions for our family.

Matthew Paul Turner has written another amazing and beautiful story. All of the colors of Christmas come alive in this beautifully illustrated book. I can picture families taking their own scavenger hunt to find the colors of Christmas throughout their home or community after reading this book. We were so excited about this book we added additional ones to our ministry library. This is a MUST have for his Christmas season!

It ends with a powerful statement to help us and our kiddos bring the meaning of Christmas to our lives year round! It truly is such a sweet book!!! As usual, Matthew Paul Turner brings power of words to illuminate the magic of Christmas and how it changes us!

Wonderful new Christmas book for the kids in your life!

I'm excited to add Matthew Paul Turner's new Christmas children's book to our holiday book collection. We love all of his children's books. Matthew's modern lyrics are whimsical and fun. My 9 yr old chuckled at a few of the rhymes because he related them to our family holiday traditions. Gillian Gamble beautifully illustrated a diverse group of characters and festive holiday scenes. This book invites reader to notice all the colors of Christmas while holding space for every child to see themselves at the nativity manager, including a brown baby Jesus. "Christmas is the color of YOU". This book is a great gift for all the kids in your life. I'll be gifting it to our nephew and cousins.

An Old Christmas Story for a New Generation

5 out of 5 stars
- 2 years ago
MPT has done it again pairing sweet rhymes with unbelievable illustrations just perfect to set your family toward a holiday mood. With sweeping, full page journeys on every page taking you literally into the colors of Christmas, children and adults are sure to look at the spirit of Christmas with new eyes. Challenge your family to a holiday color scavenger hunt, searching every day for something new to fit the story and move the celebration onward toward Christmas Day. All the Colors of Christmas is sure to become another MPT success story and a treasured seasonal tradition. In particular, the page with the nativity illustration is inclusive and diverse, representing the faith of a new (and the next) generation. Perhaps most importantly, All the Colors of Christmas invites us, the readers, into the story, reminding us that the Incarnation is not just another inaccessible Bible story, the Incarnation is for us and WE are part of the story! All the Colors of Christmas is a starting place for exploring progressive faith with the smallest of children and is sure to stir the heart of every adult as well. Glad I added All the Colors of Christmas to my family's holiday book shelf and look forward to reading it every year for many years to come!

Matthew Paul Turner is one of the only people I fully trust to write Christian kids books. He creates such a pure space for children to hear about God's love. I ran to Target as soon as the website said this book was available, only to find out that it wouldn't actually be placed on shelves for another week. So then I rushed back a week later!

I never get into Christmas this early BUT I read this book and it RUINED ME! I smelled Christmas, I tasted Christmas and there’s no turning back! It is truly magical. @matthewpaulturner is our favorite children’s book author because every book is a beautifully poetic journey with illustrations that are inclusive and represent so many different people and families. The last few pages of this book wrap up the entire story with a big inspiring uplifting bow. I can’t say enough about this book.

All the best feels of Christmas

TessaT - 2 years ago
"It's God within a baby's skin, on that very first Christmas Day." This book is a delightful celebration of tradition & truth. The perfect blend of glittering wonder & attention to Jesus, comfortable nostalgia & encouragement. 'You're a part of the story, the joy & the glory.' The lilting language & dreamy illustrations kept us entranced to the last page. Truly the best book you could gift this Christmas; I loved it as much as my children!

Highly recommend for anyone with littles in your life!

Christmas is BROWN

5 out of 5 stars
Kari Leasner - 2 years ago
Stunningly beautiful in it's simplicity, this story moves to the top of the heap when it comes to my "go to" books for the Season. "Christmas is BROWN... It's God with a baby's skin on the very first Christmas Day," I am honored to share this message with the children in my ministry and life. Jesus came with beautiful brown skin to live among us. Thank you Matthew Paul Turner for making space for every child, to see themselves in the story at the manger.

Sweet Christmas Picture Book

Reviews - 2 years ago
What a sweet new Christmas book! Happy to add to our other Matthew Paul Turner books and our Holiday book collection. My daughter and I like the way the colors are used to remind you of your favorite traditions. The dog, with his cute reindeer antlers, being included in the celebrations is her favorite part of the illustrations.

This book is beautifully written and the artwork is captivating. Not only does it have the feeling of Christmas, but it really is a book of the ages. Matthew Paul Turner did it again. We have already read it a few times for story time before bed. The diversity in the artwork, the memories it bring, all around one of the best Christmas books out there. I can safely say this is a must for any book collector. Will be giving a few as gifts this year

Gorgeous Book

Bookseiffel - 2 years ago
All the Colors of Christmas is a fantastic Children's book! It helps even the smallest children see the meaning of Christmas as they travel through the colors of Christmas. My favorite part says, "Christmas is YOU! It's your own unique hue. It's your wondrous gleam and your bedtime dreams. You color each Christmas anew." This is a wonderful, meaningful book for children and adults alike. It will certainly become a family tradition!
